Seeing From Darkness and From Light

 

“How clear everything becomes when you look from the darkness of a dungeon.”
― Umberto Eco, Foucault’s Pendulum

 

Perceiving from darkness
almost everything shines bright
Memories of happy times
and traveled places
now back safely enveloped
in my night shroud
Dissolving in the visions of what once was
and unlimited potential for what may be

 

Perceiving from the light
in full manifest
all seems dim aglow
I have reached the pinnacle
and I know I must return
but then nothing new emerges
Erupting in beingness
and waiting for the shadows
that will return me home.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Shadows and Shoutouts

 

“Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow”
― T.S. Eliot

We conceive things so perfectly. We have an inspiration, a moment of clarity where something we wish to manifest is perfect. Then we go about creating it and it never quite fits that conceptual vision. Some line noise gets in along the way. This could be from moment to moment distractions or it could be that the concept does not quite fit our notions of ‘how it should be’ or even that we doubt our ability to actualize our concept perfectly and the doubts become self-fulfilling prophecies. Our own shadows get in the way. Of course the more aware we become of our shadows, the more we can take them into account and the better we can manifest. These shadows are never anything to fear. In many cases, it is our shadows that inspire us to have the concept in the first place.
Blessings, G

 

In the last few weeks, I have had two lovely shout-outs that I wanted to express my appreciation for and to recommend the blogs of both these men unreservedly.
AdamfromNorway (http://adamangel.wordpress.com) is an amazing poet, writer and artist (he does it all and rather well) and I find something to be inspired by and enjoy (he has great taste in music as well) every time I stop by his blog. His shoutout to me:
http://adamangel.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/shout-out-to-gary-grosenberg/ is much appreciated.
<strongStephen Dillard-Carroll (http://www.travelingtarot.com) has a fantastic tarot site and his explanations of each of the cards are well worth exploring. He used my Eight of Cup image and had some very nice things to say about Waking Spirals in today’s entry (http://www.travelingtarot.com/apps/blog/show/41147233-tarot-the-day-for-wednesday-january-29th-2014).
Thank you both.

More shootouts tomorrow.

Quote of the Day – August 6 2011

“Let us repeat the two crucial negative premises as established firmly by all human experience: (1) Words are not the things we are speaking about; and (2) There is no such thing as an object in absolute isolation.”
–Alfred Korzybski

Quote of the Day – October 30 2010

“I have one major rule: Everybody is right. More specifically, everybody — including me — has some important pieces of truth, and all of those pieces need to be honored, cherished, and included in a more gracious, spacious, and compassionate embrace.”

Two Moon Manifestation by G A Rosenberg

Facets — Just a thought

If we each contain the universe within us yet can at any given time exhibit one part then every change we go through, everything we manifest, every different facet of ourselves, whether perceived outwardly by others or ourself brings us closer to fulfilling our potential. This may seem to be advocating all manner of ‘anti-social’ behaviour but not necessarily. As human beings (or spiritual beings having a human experience 😉 ) we can choose which sides of ourselves we show. We can also choose how to show it.
Perhaps we do it through our music (either performing, creating, or playing on the stereo). Does the quiet banker enjoy Heavy Metal or Punk Rock on the side? Does the biker head into his garage when he can’t take it anymore and play Bach? Does the lead singer of the Death Metal band occasionally like to mellow out with gospel music blasting from his headphones? I couldn’t say but that would be examples of different sides manifesting.
I perceive music as a fantastic way to exhibit the different moods or aspects within us. It would be far from the only way. Any form of art can be used in this way. Perhaps one of the main functions of art is to provide an outlet for each of us to convey our internal universe, On some level I believe we all have some form of artistic expression…
